We are excited to introduce the latest version of our RR Racing Ultimate Steering Response System (USRS)
Race Edition. The new USRS Race Edition upgraded lower control arm (LCA) and housing system features a solid spherical bearing. It is not often that a product offers so much for such a reasonable price and easy installation!
What makes the USRS Race Edition different than our other versions? The Race Edition uses a solid spherical bearing instead of a polyurethane bushing. Advantage is reduced deflection, and even better feedback. But rather than make high-maintenance track only product, our new USRS Race Edition is FULLY SEALED, keeping dirt and moisture away from the spherical bearing for maintenance-free operation!
Ever read magazine articles comparing Lexus and BMW's, filled with complaints about Lexus's lack of steering "feel?" Our goal with the Lexus LCA upgrade was to significantly improve steering feel and turn-in response. One of the problems with the Lexus front suspension is the soft rear control arm bushing. Not only does this bushing deflect laterally under load, but it also deflects fore/aft under braking, leading to imprecise and sometimes "wandering" steering feel caused by movement of the effective contact patch of the tire. All current aftermarket offerings address the lateral deflection, but do little to eliminate the fore/aft deflection that leads to dynamic toe changes under braking and cornering.
By eliminating excessive movement of the soft stock lower control arm bushing, we dramatically improved steering response and feel during hard cornering, without the excessive vibration and harshness associated with race-only hard spherical bearings. As illustrated in our image gallery, the OEM suspension control arms, under braking and cornering, actually move with respect to the chassis. This results in increased understeer, non-linear steering response, and reduced stability under hard braking conditions, and in many cases excessive inner tire wear, a well known problem on many Lexus models. We have designed our USRS to significantly reduce all dynamic toe changes and lateral deflections!
